white titles spine; blind-stamped circular maze design front cover; "This is a book about how people become patients & also about how they may get over being patients & even how they can keep from becoming patients again or at all. Illness does not transform a human being into something less. The Romans bequeathed to us an ideal of vigor and good living in the proverb, 'a sound mind in a sound body.' Psychosomatic medicine is a projection of this truism into actnal practice. It derives its name from 'psyche,' which has been translated as mind or spirit or soul, but which actually incIudes all of them, and 'soma' which means body. Hardly anyone needs to be told that in this world mind and body are inseparable. But we do not always act as if we knew that, whether we are patients or physicians. It is obvious that when a man is well, he is well in mind and body. When he is sick, he is more than likely to be sick in mind and body, too. The physician experienced in the psychosomatic approach, therefore, sets out to treat patients as complete human beings."; bookseller's small label & previous owner's name inside front cover; some fading to spine titles but otherwise a neat & clean copy; including index - 263 pages.
